You know better the theory these days evolves fast and furious. If you want to be successful at correspondence game, you have to try to reach advantage already at the opening. Otherwise it is proven very difficult to win against a player who also uses strong computer chess programs.
What is better than looking at the openings played by world's best correspondence players. Look if they use your favorite variation or how they are successful with different openings. The library is with format CTG so you can view it with Chess Base program.
